The Weekly Forecast (27)

Welcome to a weekly feature of sorts here on Beauty and the Bookshelf: The Weekly Forecast! I've been reworking the blog a bit, trying to post more and be consistent, but also to post more than reviews and the same two memes every week (assuming I even post anything during a week). Then I thought of The Weekly Forecast, a way to recap what I did on the blog the week before, and then to forecast what will be on the blog the coming week. The latter could be helpful because it keeps me in check, kind of: if I tell you I'm going to post a review this week then now I basically have to post a review this week. But first: let me tell you what happened on the blog last week.

My desire to blog these last couples has been low, and the desire basically diminished when my computer began having issues charging and turning on. Because of the latter, one week of blogging got short and I ended up going on hiatus last week completely. (Which is unfortunate because Get Up Offa That Slump was happening, but at least the schedule was up!) I am still very much having computer problems, but I'm going to try and persist in blogging this week because I'm falling behind and I need to get certain posts up at somewhat certain times. Let's just hope my laptop and its charger quit being bitches.

Recommendation of the Week

I've decided to add something new to these posts--recommendations! Each week I'll rec something I'm currently a fan of, whether it's a newly discovered Instagram account, what I'm listening to on repeat, what I'm watching, or something I ate that tasted amazing. Right now I'm awfully obsessed with...

I decided to add something to my yogurt: almonds (whole and raw) and chocolate chips. I usually really only like nuts if they're in a dessert and smothered in chocolate, but the almonds actually work here! All you need is yogurt (I use Tillamook's Oregon Rasberry), chocolate chips, and almonds. I'll use either one or two things of yogurt, pour out half, sprinkle the top with almonds and chocolate chips, cover it with the rest of the yogurt, then freeze it for a bit! YUMMMM (and healthyish?!).

Have you been as wonderful at blogging as I have been?
